When I was in college at Wake Forest, I was one of the founding members of an academic society that was resurrected by a couple of my friends. I was recently searching around for some of the web work I did back then (some prime examples of the “early web”). Couldn’t find anything except this: an excerpt from The Howler (WFU yearbook).

The Euzelian Society Academic Society celebrated its third year back on campus this year. The Society sponsored a fall colloquium series exploring human rights issues and a spring colloquium series exploring interpretations of the Apocalyse. Among the social events this year were a trip to the Holocaust Memorial in Washington, D.C, a poetry slam atop Hanging Rock, a trek back to Old Wake Forest, a planning retreat on the North Carolina coast, a week-long celebration of the Renaissance in April, concluded by a Madrigal Banquet. The Society motto, “I will find a way or I will make one,” and the Society symbol, the Greek upsilon, both symbolize a collective attempt to create a forum on campus for intellectual discussions outside of the classroom. Besides the semester-long colloquium series, the Society holds social events that try to combine the intellect and the spirit. All Society events are open to the Wake Forest community. Remember: If you have a mind, Euz it!
Nerdy, yet satisfyingly at the edge of what was going on at WFU at the time.
